The 21st Collin Classic bicycle rally will take place June 9, in McKinney. The multi-option course ride, which attracts families, weekend riders and avid cyclists, begins and finishes at McKinney North High School and offers routes
of four, 20, 27, 32, 42, 48, 52 and 62 miles. Registration and packet pick-up begins at 6:30 a.m. and the bicycle rally starts at 8 a.m.
The four-mile route is designed for the family with kids that aren’t ready for an open road ride, but with the desire to experience a bike rally. As a one-, two- or three-loop route, distance options are four, eight or 12 miles, with small hills.
The longer routes run through the downtown and historic district of McKinney, heading out to capture some rolling county roads. These options offer rides between 20 to 62 miles long, with all routes filled with hill climbs.
Fully stocked break points are stationed along the way, along with roving bike mechanics and medical support. A post-ride party at the finish line will feature a big tent area with cool treats,
misters and fans, a non-alcoholic Biker Bar and massages for a fee. Riders can freshen up with a shower at the high school.
Location: 2550 Wilmeth Rd., McKinney. For more information, visit CollinClassic.org.
